Please call (231) 591-5000 or stop by our office and give a description of the lost
item. We will attempt to match what you have lost with any similar items that may
have been turned in to our department. If the item is not in our inventory, we will
log it in our records management system and contact you if the item is turned in.
If You Have Found an Item
Please bring the item to the campus public safety building so we can attempt to locate
the owner or hold it for anyone who comes to DPS looking for their lost items.
The "Lost and Found" is maintained by the Ferris State University Department of Public
Safety. If you lose an item in a specific building (such as FLITE Library) they may
keep some items there. You can always call the department at 231-591-5000 or specific
building to see if any items matching the description of yours have been turned in.
To retrieve an item, please call 231-591-5000 or stop in at the department. Our lost
and found is secured, therefore you will need to bring with you a picture ID and detailed
description of the item to retrieve any and all lost property.
All items of value are held for 180 days and non-valuables for 90 days. After that
time, items are donated to local area charities or disposed of.
Please note: Many buildings on campus hold items for some time before turning them
into our lost and found. We recommend you call the building or nearest buildings where
you may have lost your item(s).
